The PrepEase Protein Purification Kits for High Specificity are designed to purify recombinant polyhistidine-tagged (His-tagged) recombinant proteins expressed in E. coli using immobilized metal ion affinity chromatography (IMAC). The kits may also be used to purify His-tagged proteins from other expression systems such as insect cells, mammalian cells, and yeast. Purification may take place under standard, native conditions or under denaturing conditions, depending on the solubility of the expressed protein.
PrepEase Protein Purification Kits are based on the use of novel, dry silicabased resin, precharged with Ni2+ ions. The High Specificity Kits utilize TED (tris-carboxymethyl ethylene diamine), a special chelating group, which enables strong and efficient binding of target proteins to the resin. TED is a strong pentadentate metal chelator, which occupies five of the six binding sites in the coordination sphere of the Ni2+ ion. The single remaining binding site can be exchanged with the histidine residues of the recombinant protein.
|Binding of His-tagged Protein to PrepEase Ni-TED Resin|
Purification methods that utilize other chelators, such as NTA (nitrilotriacetic acid), may lead to metal leaching and/or non-specific binding of untagged proteins to the matrix. NTA chelating groups occupy four of the six binding sites in the coordination sphere of the Ni2+ ion, leaving two sites for protein binding. The additional chelating site of TED minimizes metal leaching during purification and reduces non-specific binding of untagged proteins to the matrix. This results in high specificity of His-tagged protein binding to the resin, leading to higher purity of the eluted target protein.
